Berlin, December 06, 2017. Starting signal for the realization of the Quartier Heidestraße in Europacity: Construction work has begun on THE CORE building, which is being constructed in the center of the quarter. The building, with six or nine stories and a striking red brick facade, will be the first building to be erected in the Quartier Heidestrasse. As a local supply center with stores on the first floor, with offices, practices and apartments, it will represent the heart of the neighborhood in the future. With its main front, THE CORE faces the triangular neighborhood square, which will become a meeting place and rest area for residents. The building’s offices are located on the floors along Heidestraße, Europacity’s future boulevard.

Around 6,700 square meters of retail space will be created on the five-meter-high first floor of the building designed by architects ROBERTNEUN. In addition, around 12,530 square meters of office space with modern equipment are planned. The remaining approximately 18,340 square meters will be used to build rental apartments for all those who appreciate urban life in all its diversity. The building is scheduled for completion in 2019.

Thomas Bergander, Managing Director of Taurecon Real Estate Consulting GmbH and project developer of the quarter, explains on the occasion of the start of construction: “After a very constructive planning process with our partners, the state of Berlin and the district of Mitte, we are delighted about this new phase of our construction project. Thanks to the very swift and cooperative approval process, we can get to work on implementation in a timely manner. Seeing plans become reality is a special moment for any project developer. We are convinced of the quality of the selected architecture and the functional diversity in the neighborhood. A very unique Berlin mix will stand at the end of all the construction work – modern, intelligent and user-oriented.”

Quartier Heidestraße is being developed as part of Europacity and comprises offices, retail and housing as a mixed urban quarter on approximately 85,000 square meters of land. The design planning for all subareas has been completed following a series of architectural competitions with the participation of the State of Berlin.
